Hot on the heels of her recent visit to an Action on Addiction recovery center, Kate Middleton took time out this Valentine’s Day to make the charity rounds. While her own Valentine, Prince William, was overseas, the Duchess spent time at the Liverpool Ronald McDonald House and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Alder Hey is the largest children’s hospital in Europe. While there, Middleton was made privy to the plans for their new facility, which won’t be available to the public until next month. She also visited with patients, families, and staff in the Burns and Oncology Units. Everyone was said to be in high spirits during the visit and 9-year-old Aimee Haswell, a patient since she was just days old, thanked UK’s sweetheart with a special posey.

While at the Ronald McDonald House, the Duchess officially opened a new set of family apartments at the facility which will accommodate families whose children require treatment for six months or more. The House works in conjunction with Alder Hey to provide a private and comforting environment for those dealing with their children’s health issues.

Middleton’s tour also included a stop at The Brink, a dry bar run by Action on Addiction. Jacquie Johnston-Lynch, Action on Addiction’s head of service in Liverpool, thanked her saying, “This is just such an incredible honour. Anything that can put recovery on the map is 100% amazing.”

Johnston-Lynch’s 8-year-old son Jaqson presented the royal with a bouquet of roses and special cupcake adorned with the phrase, “Jaqson loves Kate” upon her arrival.
